Christmas knits for the fam, Part I

I decided to knit my family their Christmas gifts this year.  Here's the first batch:

1. For my sister Emily: cabled hat in a super soft alpaca-merino blend (design: Solveig by drops, yarn: highland duo aran white)




2. For my sister Julie: extra long mittens styled after Bella in Twilight (design: Bella's Mittens by subliminalrabbit, yarn: Cascade 220 worsted indigo heather and misty lilac heather held together)



3.  For my sister Julie: 1920s-style cloche hat (design: escargot by goldeniris, yarn: Cascade 220 worsted misty lilac heather and mauve heather)



4.  For my brother Michael: a slouchy hat (design: hof√≥s by westknits, yarn: knitpicks palette fingering midnight heather, marble heather, finnley heather held double)




There's more to come... especially a major Estonia lace shawl for my mom... wish me luck!
